J. Ezike Plays an Important Role in Empowering the People of Biafra

While the first world citizens enjoy their lives in peace and prosperity, there are several nations even in this day and age that have been struck by political wars and anarchy. This not only deters the development of such places, but also leaves the lives of residents in the hands of an uncertain fate. There are many African countries that are facing such issues with concerns relating to food, hygiene, and safety. Fortunately, people like J. Ezike have devoted their lives to put these matters to rest.

J. Ezike was born in 1987. He was a composed and focused individual who loved to help others around him. This was a trait that grew with age. Being from Biafra himself, John was well-aware of the entire adverse living condition. From politics to the basic necessities of life, the state was suffering from it all.

John knew that this matter needs to be brought to the limelight. He knew that being a Biafran, he was obliged to make a move. The thought was translated into action when John himself took upon the role of being a political activist. He was also a columnist who uses his expertise to write about the Nigerian civil war and the grave issues this entire region was facing.

Once, the man spent over 16 hours in captivity because he was running a digital campaign on the Biafran referendum. The case took hype on digital demanding the release of Daniel and Tim Elombah, two journalists who were John’s colleague in unveiling the organizations behind the Benue massacre. John has been working tirelessly to bring a positive change in Biafra, and then reach out to other African regions where such dire conditions have been persisting for long.

J. Ezike has been a one-man show in fighting the wrongful political regimes in Biafra. His lifelong efforts have resulted in a significant betterment in the conditions. Before John, Biafra had become yet another term for the unfed babies and genocides that were associated with this state. This image might not have vanished completely, but it surely has toned down by a great extent, thanks to John’s efforts.

J. Ezike is also a columnist writing to turn more heads towards to crucial matters of this third-world place. Apart from being a political activist and a columnist, John loves to create music. He has performed in various clubs, churches, streets, and clubs, etc. John graduated from the University of Abuja. He then attended the London School of Law and Management where he studied business. He has also authored several books on Biafra, all of which are available for purchase at Amazon.
